GENEVA, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 17th August, 2016) - FIFA ethics committee investigators have called for a six-year ban against the former head of the South African Football Association Kirsten Nematandani over his alleged role in 2010 match-fixing, a statement said Wednesday. The committee was also seeking lifetime bans over the same offence against a former official from the Zimbabwe Football Association, Jonathan Musavengana, and the ex-coach of Togo's national team, Banna Tchanile.
The possible sanctions follow a probe led by the deputy chief of FIFA's Independent Ethics Committee, Djimbaraye Bourngar, and are subject to approval by judges at world football's governing body. Nematandani, the most prominent name in the group, was put on "special leave" in December 2012 following a FIFA report into match-fixing. He was reinstated in January 2013 but not cleared of any wrongdoing and subsequently left the SAFA.
